A bit of poetic licence I think...

"Garner looked at the weeds swaying in the breeze on the pitch and said they couldnít play on it."

and it didn't rain at Scunthorpe...

"Scunthorpe scored and it started raining. Morfuni started to feel like he was bad luck"

Not sure who the 4 rival supporter groups are either. Still an interesting article though...

The club had four rival supportersí clubs who didnít seem to like each other. He organised a monthly meeting with them to answer any questions and to try to bring them together.

Did we? It's the Supporters Club of Swindea that's the problem.

Ha even a feel good post in Australia has fans picking the bones out of it. It's madness these days

Not 4 but there was no way the Trust and Official supporters club got on that well before.

And yet he still gets occasional pelters. Unless thereís instant success on the pitch heís a fraud and weíre heading for oblivion.

Football fans, eh.

Well yeah... just making a few observations if that's OK with you... the writer blatantly made several things up when he didn't need to...but let's ignore that shall we?? And to be fair, I did say it was an interesting article...did you read that bit?

No idea where to put this.

When we replaced our floodlights in 2018, the new ones are LED right?

Just wondering.

With a few clubs trialling early kick off I wonder where the cost saving is expected to come from.

I was suprised how cheap LED are to run. We are probably talking circa £100 or even less if my maths and research is right.

There's obviously no indication Swindon are going down this route.

Surely everything else is pretty much constant in energy terms. Legend's, hospitality, concourse, changing rooms - all have to be lit whatever.

I must be missing something

Well should the club decide to go for early kick offs, that is me done with my ST. I cannot possibly take half a day off without pay on a Saturday. As it is I lose 2 1/2 hours money just to get to a 3pm kick off. Add in the ST. Add in the fuel as I work out of town, would just make it unviable.

I can't see it being commercially viable.   Even just thinking about Corporate tickets, who wants a 3 course sit down meal at 10.00 in the morning?  Not forgetting lost bar sales and harder for away fans to attend.

I think you could watch on Ifollow too (legally) which will lose a few in the ground but may gain a few who can't normally go.
